Rumors have been flying that Jersey Shore Season 6 is the last season of the show, at least with the original cast we've come to know and love. So far, there's been no official word on the matter, and fans are eager for any and every sign about the fate of the show.

It's not surprising that fans jumped on what seemed to be a big clue last week: An Instagram account that appeared to belong to Vinny posted a pic of the cast, saying "Who's excited? Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere Thursday, Oct 4th for its last season."

But don't freak out — it's not actually Vinny's account. The account that posted the pic was called "vinnyguadagninoo," but Vinny recently tweeted a pic from his actual account, which is "vincentguadagnino."

If that's not enough evidence for you, The Examiner originally reported about this potential story, and have since updated their story, saying that MTV confirms that the vinnyguadagninoo account is fake.

So relax. The fate of Jersey Shore Season 6 is still up in the air.
